in the u.s. has now claimed 14 lives. the centers for disease control reported the latest count today. it said a total of 170 people have been infected across eleven states. the outbreak has been linked to steroid injections for back pain that came from a specialty pharmacy in massachusetts. roughly 14,000 people received the shots. in pakistan, a 14-year-old activist was still fighting for her life today, in critical condition, after being shot by a taliban gunman. malala yousufzai was moved by helicopter to a military hospital in rawalpindi. the teenager had advocated education for girls, and was attacked as she left her school on tuesday. elsewhere in pakistan, officials said a u.s. drone strike killed ten militants near a village in the northwest tribal region. at least 15 others were wounded. a masked gunman in yemen has assassinated a yemeni security official working at the u.s. embassy there. the drive-by shooting happened near the man's home in the capital city sanaa as he headed to work. officials said the attack bore the hallmarks of al qaeda. the victim worked for the embas
to attack the u.s. consulate. >> it's a serious issue, a real issue and will come up in the context of this campaign between now and election day. take a step back, what i find amazing is the extent to which foreign policy benefits the democrats overall in this election. when you listen to joe biden talk about the fact that, you know, our troops are out of iraq, we don't know where romney really stands on that, our troops are coming out of afghanistan, we don't really know where romney stands on that, and bin laden, of course, is dead, those are -- >> he is? i mean could they say it more? >> you know they're going to say it adinfa my tum, these are all popular positions with the american people. romney really is on the wrong side of iraq and afghanistan. the president is really fulfilling the promises he made in the last campaign and doing what the american people want him to do. it's very unusual to have an election in which the democrats have the advantage on foreign policy but we got one right now. >> particularly i thought it was good that biden pushed him on syria. are you sayi
and readings. the real big drivers are europe and the u.s. elections. in terms of the big moves, we still have a ways to wait. the last big moves were the ecb and the federal reserve. the market ran up on those. that was great news for the market. there's no big bullish driver force right now. that's why we're getting this tentative move. a great chart you showed earlier where it fades. nobody wants to benegative, but they're cautious. >> they are right now. mark, what was the benchmark you're waiting for next week here? >> we have a couple data points i'm looking at. that's reports from the empire and philly fed service manufacturing to see if they corroborate the ism reading we had a week ago. that was above the 50 mark. the boom/bust line, if you will. if that's good, i think that portends good news on stabilization on the domestic front. we also get two reports on housing. once again, seeing the numbers coming out of jpmorgan and wells fargo today, we're seeing affirming information that the housing recovery is hardening and that's good news. frankly, i'm looking at china. i think the poin
